When his son Rowan was diagnosed with autism, Rupert Isaacson was devastated; afraid he might never be able to communicate with his child. But when Isaacson, a lifelong horseman, rode their neighbour’s horse with Rowan, Rowan improved immeasurably. He was struck with a crazy idea: why not take Rowan to Mongolia, the one place in the world where horses and shamanic healing intersected? Horse Boy is the dramatic and heart-warming story of that impossible adventure. In Mongolia, the family found undreamed of landscapes and people, unbearable setbacks, and advances beyond their wildest dreams. This is a deeply moving, truly one-of-a-kind story of a family willing to go to the ends of the earth to help their son, and of a boy learning to connect with the world for the first time.
